I joined this group in hopes for some advice, because I don't know where else to turn. And I don't have an appointment until 2/18!!
My question is, how do you know your pregnant with the IUD. Besides the obvious blood test!? I've had my IUD in for almost 2yrs. In Dec. my peroid was late and very light. And this month I'm always hungry, tired, crabby and no peroid yet. Also feels like my belly is hardening. Thanks bunches!!

Took a test and it came back negative! So I don't know what to do now.

It was the same time as last month, but it was here and gone Monday. This has been one of issues I've had with my IUD. Others are sharp cramps every once in a while and I stink more down there. And I have Mirena. It's been in almost 2yrs!

im seeing, from my experience and others experiences, that these dang IUD's are more trouble than they are worth.  true, i havent gotten pregnant in 6 years, but for crying out loud the symptoms are not fun to deal with at all.  all you can do is wait til your appt.  in the mean time maybe consider another BC option if your really unhappy with what this one is doing to you.  im trying to save up to have my removed.

Thinking about getting mine removed. We're ready to try for another one! In the mean time, I need to figure out if I want to continue with another IUD or something else.

we are done having kids, i want him to get clipped.  but you know how men are, he isnt quite ready.  so idk whats gonna happen when i get this thing out.  might have to close shop on him to motivate him to do what is best for us....lol.  

im not a fan of hormonal BC, but after this IUd thing, i think i would rather have the hormones.  could you get on the pill or the shot while your waiting to TTC again?

I refuse to use the depo shot! It messed me up and it took 2 1/2yrs for me to conceive my son. And I won't know anything until my appt on the 18th. I also want to make sure 100% that hubby is wanting to start TTC again, before having my IUD removed. Best of luck to you!! Hope you figure out something.
